While we’re here, let’s talk about the “meat” aspect of this quick, shall we?  Because I know a lot of you are probably wondering how something like this can even be plant based, and how to get it.  The Abbot’s Butcher makes the most incredible plant based meats I’ve ever come across. I’m so excited to be working with them, getting to create really fun recipes like this for you guys- and I stand by this brand 100%.  They use whole foods in their products, compared to a lot of their vegan meat competitors, which means this is a vegan meat you can eat on a more regular basis because it’s actually good for you!  On top of being healthy, they really are the closest product I’ve personally ever tried to the real thing.  The texture & taste are beyond spot on, and I really hope you guys all get to give them a try!

This bowl really couldn’t be simpler to put together.  The only cooking required is making your rice and cooking the “ground beef”.  Cook your rice according to package instructions, and allow to cool slightly before adding to the bowl.  For the beef, heat a few tablespoons of toasted sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat and then add 1 package of Abbot’s Butcher Ground Beef.  Allow to cook for a few minutes until it starts to brown, and then add some teriyaki sauce (please note the teriyaki sauce mentioned in the recipe contains honey, but you can easily find teriyaki sauces that don’t!) & allow to cook for another few minutes until everything is warm and sticky.

For the vegetables, thinly slice your yellow bell pepper, and chop up your cilantro, scallions, and Serrano peppers.  For the cucumbers, using a vegetable peeler, make long cucumber strips, and then roll them up into little roses.  You can easily just chop them up if you don’t want to do this, but it adds a lot to the presentation of the dish.

Once your rice and “beef” are ready, you can assemble your bowl!  Place your rice in the bottom of the bowl, and then add your beef, vegetables, kimchi, and herbs.  Top the beef with some sesame seeds for some added crunch.

This recipe is truly so easy to put together, and really lives up to the hype, I promise. Plus how easy is it that you can get most of your ingredients delivered to you from Milk & Eggs?! Super minimal effort meal, with maximum flavor results.  I really hope you guys enjoyed this recipe, and if you’re going to order the ingredients off Milk & Eggs, you can use my code PLVNTFOOD for $15 off any $35+ order!  And a huge thanks to The Abbot’s Butcher for creating the best faux meat products that make this meal extra special.
